Strawberry Shortcake

6 cups fresh sliced strawberries
1/4 cup + 4 tbl. sugar, divided
2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
1 beaten egg
2/3 cup milk
1 cup whipping cream

Stir together strawberries and 1/4 c sugar. Set aside.

For shortcake, thoroughly stir together flour, 2 Tbsp sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in 1/2 c butter or margarine until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Combine beaten egg and milk. Add all at once to dry ingredients and stir just to moisten. Spread dough in a greased 8 x 1 1/2-inch round pan, building up edges slightly.

Bake at 450 F. for 15 to 18 minutes. Cool in pan 10 minutes. Remove from pan. Split into 2 layers. Remove top layer carefully.

Whip cream with 2 Tbsp sugar just to soft peaks. Spoon berries and whipped cream between layers and over top. Serve warm.
